Butchart Gardens and Royal British Columbia Museum: Victoria, Canada

Trip with family to Victoria on Vancouver Island. We checked out Butchart Gardens with all of its impressive Christmas lights on display.

Three french hens

Five gold rings

11 Pipers piping. These were my absolute favourites because they were so ridiculously creepy and evil.

This guy needs his own christmas horror movie.

Anyone who has seen Butchart will recognize this famous view.

Carols were great, there was also an ice rink.
The next day we went to the Museum of British Columbia, which was quite impressive, and had a large prehistory exhibition.

Seattle Thunderbirds Ice Hockey

We took our family visiting to an ice hockey game. Seattle vs. Spokane. I felt a little sorry for Spokane due to the vigorous, and obviously well-rehearsed, chant of "Spokane sucks!" to musical accompaniment.
